COLCHESTER diners will soon have another exciting choice to choose from with the latest addition to the Northern Gateway development.

Turkish restaurant Kervan Kitchen will soon be opening a new site in Colchester.

The chain is no stranger to Essex as it already has branches in Basildon and Brentwood.

The eatery boasts an extensive menu with a diverse range of hot, cold and fish-based appetisers for customers to enjoy.

Some of their traditional Turkish main courses include Adana Kofte – which is minced lamb mixed with herbs, onions and peppers.

They also have chicken and kamb skewers, as well as lamb ribs and lamb chops.

Kervan Kitchen also serves up Rib Eye, T-Bone and Fillet steak, all served with chips, Portobello mushrooms, asparagus, cherry tomatoes and a creamy peppercorn sauce with brandy.

Vegetarian visitors are also well looked after with roasted vegetables, vegetarian grill, vegetable and halloumi casserole and moussaka.

For those with a seafood preference, there is also an ample selection of choices to pick from.

Some examples include chef’s special prawns, salmon fillet, fillet of sea bass, mixed fish skewer, saucy king prawns, black cod and a whole lobster.

Aside from their food, Kervan Kitchen also provide live entertainment for their guests.

Singers such as Craig Joseph, Jenny Addis and Natalie Ward have performed at the Brentwood branch.

On its website Kervan Kitchen said: "Our food is known around the world to be healthy and full of flavors.

"We will honor that tradition by offering dishes that contain an abundance of vegetables, legumes, and hearty grains.

"However, Mediterranean food is not authentic and complete without olive oil, fresh squeezed lemon juice, garlic, savory herbs, and spices.

"The variety of salads and vegetarian dishes that we serve complement our grilled meat and chicken kebabs.

"We take pride in the way we prepare our food."
